Coming to Tucson for the month of Jan

Sounds like fun but I'll be in route from the midwest trailering my GSA. This my 3rd trip to Tucson and have explored most paved roads south to Nogales, east to Douglas, north to Eagar and back west to Apache jct. Looking forward to getting together and seeing more gravel and hard packed dirt. Anyone have any free time to ride, or even suggestions please contact me. You play tour guide I'll buy lunch.

When and Where?

So, what time and where to meet for the New Years ride?

As for warmer beverages, I received some homemade moonshine for Christmas, I'll bring it along! :

Nice to be back in the desert again with a new set of wheels.







A new to me seat and rack also.





With my new bike being the biggest I've owned to date,this shot was mandatory.




All dirt so far.





This is the first real ride since I bought it, so I checked out a variety of roads and trails.






















Still all dirt, sand or rock.













Hit assphault.


14 miles of pavement completed the loop.

I'm find with eating, the diner is fine, or someplace with good in Bisbee so we can warm up.

My friend Dave wants to camp, I offered up my spare bike but he is rusty on his riding, he said he would meet us there in his truck. Are you guys cool with that? He could bring some firewood too which will be helpful.

Brian, you know him, Dave, he helped you move.

I been trying to convince him to get a dual sport bike for 5 years.

I'm good with that. Firewood is always welcome.

Stupid question for you guys: are there any trees up there to hang my hammock tent in? I bought a new (to me) super shelter for my hammock and would like to try it out. Before you laugh, I have camped over at Parker Canyon Lake with my two boys, and we all had hammocks in those trees (or bushes...same thing out here). Wondering if there is anything like that up there. If not I'll just pack the tent and ground gear. Probably warmer that way anyhow.

I'm good with meeting wherever.

of course dave can come!

id say the diner to be safe... only cuz i really dont know the bisbee breakfast places... 29er does though, and his culinary opinion is usually pretty reliable...

trees up there should include some big pines i expect.

Lots of trees.

Have we decided where we are camping yet, Bathtub? Rucker Canyon?

Just got back to town after being in El Paso all week with no computer. My buddy Jason is coming along and he lives in Bisbee, so if we want to eat breakfast, Bisbee Breakfast Club is our best bet. Maybe meet there at Nine? We'll top off gas in Douglas. The ride out GTR shouldn't take all day, so we can get a late lunch/early dinner in Portal. Bathtub Springs/ Bear Canyon area sounds good for camping. Guess we'll just see what's available and decide then.

Sounds good.

I need to tell Dave where we are camping, so hopefully we can get that sorted out Saturday.

I just spooned on a new TKC rear. I don't feel like installing my heated grips, no doubt a decision I will regret.

I did call the Douglas ranger district on Wednesday and none of the roads are closed, but she did say 4x4 was needed for some of the roads as they have snow/ice. Nice to see the Douglas ranger district folks don't close the roads when they see a snow flake like the folks here that shut down Carr Canyon road and the slightest hint of bad weather.


I'm not sure what all we need but I am bringing standard camping stuff (tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, stove, water, pot [cooking not smoking] and a bit of food), and some whisky! That should do it.

Brian usually has enough tools to rebuild a small block chevy engine, but now that I ride a KTM I better bring some too. :)


I suspect this ride will be really fun!

I'm going to Tucson tomorrow, so if anyone needs anything let me know. swartzy@cox.net 520-249-5237
